The Indian legal system has given a lot of power to its citizens. It is upon us to be aware of them and to use them judiciously. The Better India, in association with Lex Do It, has created some simple posters to help you #KnowYourRights
Did you know that if your gas cylinder explodes, you are entitled to Rs. 40 lakh cover? Also, that a woman can lodge a complaint through an email if she can’t go to the police station. And here’s more: that you don’t have to pay the MRP for a product, you can buy for less! MRP is the maximum retail price and you can bargain for less. However, a shopkeeper cannot charge beyond the MRP.
There are many such rights bequeathed to the citizens of India. But unfortunately, most of us have a vague or very little information about the legal system and its tenets. It’s time to change that! Take a look at these posters we created to let you #KnowYourRights and be empowered.
